Life is a challenge! From our first breath to our last we are in a struggle; buffeted by winds of life that intrude upon our souls. Do this, don’t do that. Eat this, don’t eat that, go here, go there, follow the rules, don’t make waves, look like this and so on. In our formative years we are guided by our parents, teachers and other care givers. From them we learn our values and how to treat others. We trust them! We trust what they tell us and are easily led to believe that this is the way, it is the truth. In our teens we strive to fit in – to conform to how society and our environment say we must act and react. We begin making our first conscious choices, some of which determine our life path.
